‘A bomb of some kind’? Trump says US military officials ‘think’ deadly Beirut blast was an ATTACK
President Trump has claimed the blast that rocked Beirut was likely an “attack,” citing US military officials who “seem to believe” the explosion was not accidental, despite widespread reports it was a chemical warehouse accident.

The blast erupted at a port warehouse in the Lebanese capital on Tuesday, killing at least 70 people and leaving thousands injured. Though the exact cause of the explosion has not been determined, and no Lebanese official has labeled the incident an attack, Trump told reporters that the Pentagon believes a bomb was involved.

“It would seem like it based on the explosion,” Trump said when asked whether the blast was the result of an attack.

I met with some of our great generals, they seem to feel this was not some kind of manufacturing explosion type of event.. they seem to think it was an attack, it was a bomb of some kind.

Though rumors and speculation of a potential foul play swirled on social media following the explosion, both the Israeli military and the Hezbollah militant group have denied any involvement, while Lebanese officials have also brushed aside suggestions of an Israeli rocket attack. Instead, the head of the country's General Security Directorate, Abbas Ibrahim, said an “incident” at a chemical depot set off the blast, suggesting it was accidental.

Some 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate – a chemical commonly used in fertilizers, but also in explosives – had been improperly stored at the port warehouse since 2014, President Michel Aoun said in a tweet, calling it “unacceptable” while vowing that those responsible would face the “most severe penalties.”

WATCH enormous Beirut blast from 15 synchronized camera angles as mystery surrounding its cause persists
Videos of the devastating explosion at the port of Beirut that left over 70 people dead and thousands wounded continue to emerge, painting a comprehensive picture of the destruction - though shedding no light on its cause.

A mega-compilation of 15 different videos from witnesses to Tuesday’s catastrophic explosion in Lebanon’s capital has been compiled by RT. The synced-up clips give some idea of the far-reaching devastation caused by the blast, which authorities have traced to a 2,750-ton stash of explosive ammonium nitrate in a warehouse by the port (certainly not an Israeli missile, Lebanese and Israeli authorities as well as Hezbollah have stressed).

The casualty count continues to climb and hospitals in Beirut are said to be exceeding capacity. The blast was reportedly heard as far away as Cyprus, some 150 miles away from the port.

Despite the explanations supplied by Lebanese authorities, US President Donald Trump apparently felt compelled to weigh in on the incident during a press conference Tuesday evening, suggesting - “based on the explosion” - that it was an “attack, it was a bomb of some kind” after consulting with Pentagon generals.

Secretary General of Kataeb Party killed in Beirut Port explosion
BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The Secretary General of the Kataeb Party, Nizar Najarian, was reported dead after suffering a severe injury at the party’s headquarters during the massive blast at the Port of Beirut on Tuesday.

According to LBCI, the party’s secretary general died as a result of a severe head injury at the party’s headquarters, Beit Al-Wassit (Central House), in Beirut.


Beirut explosion seems a catastrophic ‘accident similar to 2001 Toulouse fertilizer factory blast,’ detonations expert tells RT
The massive blast that shook Beirut was likely caused by a fatal mishandling of hazardous materials, mirroring the explosion that leveled a fertilizer plant in France some two decades ago, a chemist and detonations expert told RT.

Tuesday’s explosion tore through a port chemical depot and sent a towering fireball and mushroom cloud into the sky over Beirut, leaving more than 70 people dead and some 4,000 injured. Though US President Donald Trump has mused that the incident was an “attack” caused by “some kind of bomb,” Frolov – who heads the combustion and explosion department at the Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow – said he’s confident the blast was a catastrophic accident.

The casualty count continues to climb and hospitals in Beirut are said to be exceeding capacity. The blast was reportedly heard as far away as Cyprus, some 150 miles away from the port.

Despite the explanations supplied by Lebanese authorities, US President Donald Trump apparently felt compelled to weigh in on the incident during a press conference Tuesday evening, suggesting - “based on the explosion” - that it was an “attack, it was a bomb of some kind” after consulting with Pentagon generals.

人の多いところにこんなに危ないものを大量に保管しようという神経が理解できないですね。
この近辺にいたほとんどの人がその存在を知らなかったのかも知れません。とてもお気の毒です。
日本も決して傍観者のような事は言えないのですけどね。
工場や大学など、放射性物質を保管しているところはたくさんあります。
この爆発映像を見て、フクシマで懲りなかった人たちへの警告が最後通牒のように発信されている気持ちになりました。
所詮人間には危険物の管理なんて出来ないのです。

ヒズボラの弾薬などの倉庫、製造工場だとか、一回目の爆発後大きなミサイルが撃ち込まれたという説もあります。
病院が避難すべき原因としてあげている毒性のある物質とは何なのか、わからないことだらけです。
レバノンは対外債務でデフォルトしていますよね。インフレが激しく、物資は不足。そこにこの事故ですから国民は大変です。

そうですね。それプラス、コロナもありますからね。
トランプはイスラエルが攻撃を仕掛けたと言っていますね。
レバノンにいるカルロス・ゴーンも被災したそうです。
